Cartographica 1.2.7

Cartographica 1.2.7 is a bug fix and enhancement release for Cartographica 1.2 and contains a number of bug fixes and a few minor feature additions.

Additional information may be found in the release notes for prior bug releases:

OS Compatibility

Cartographica requires Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or 10.7 (Lion)

Changes since 1.2.6

Feature Enhancements

  • Added support for getting the count of the number of parts in a polygon or line geometry in a formula column
  • Allows selection of tsv files (they were always importable, but needed to be labeled .txt or .csv to be opened, now .tsv files can be opened without renaming)

Bugs Fixed

  • Fixed bug which caused changes in GCP edits to be missed when Update is pressed
  • Fixed bug which manifests itself when simultaneously opening two external shape files with ESRI-style prj files
  • Fixed bug which would cause raster layers to disappear during GCP manipulation
  • Fixed bug which would allow "resurrection" of column data by deleting and re-adding a column with the same name.
  • Fixed bug which would result in wrong column type being assumed if sparse table data was read
  • Fixed crash when exporting composite image layers
  • Fixed crash which would occur when DBF headers aren't terminated correctly in the imported files
  • Fixed issue where square inch area measurements would result in the same output as square meter
  • Fixed Bing requests so they are compatible with the changes in the URL scheme
  • Fixed bug in scripting that prevented setting of labels from a script
  • Fixed bug which resulted in images that were comprised of multiple files (such as tif,tfw ) not compositing correctly
  • Fixed bug which resulted in inappropriate export of composited files if they originally had Palettes and were being exported as TIFF files. Now, indexed file sets, when composited as a layer, are not written with Alpha layers. This means that "empty" areas will come out as white (or index 0), since we cannot steal an entry from the palette. However, non-indexed colors still have their alphas added if they're not there, allowing "holes" to be appropriately represented.
  • Fixed crash which occurred when exporting certain layers containing multiple images which were loaded from image files that included sidecar location information.
  • Fixed infrequent bug which could crash during some analysis functions (especially Buffering)
